I'm also surprised that no one has mentioned the grip safety, which was apparently a serious issue for some people for a while.
As far as that goes, the grip safety is present on both, so it doesn't really factor into the 70/80 debate.

However, under the jelly-side-down theory of guns dropping, I'm almost certain they will always land on the hammer, not the muzzle, and always from at least six feet high.
And that's precisely why the grip safety is an add-on in a few 1905s...incorporated into the design on the 1907s...and it reappeared on the 1909, 1910, and 1911s. It was and is a drop safety.
